You're the One that I Want by Susan May Warren
My rating: 4 1/2 of 5 Stars
Susan May Warren’s You're the One that I Want is a heartwarming and gripping tale. After Owen Christiansen’s NHL career ended due to injury, he disappeared and became a crew member on an Alaskan crabbing boat to begin a new life. He is interested in the captain’s daughter, Elise “Scotty” McFlynn; the two face some life-altering challenges along the way. This contemporary romance takes place on the sea, in Alaska, and in Minnesota.
You're the One that I Want is a thought-provoking novel that is full of unexpected twists. The story is filled with situations of losing your way, faith, and Christian values. I enjoyed the plot. The characters are faced with many obstacles. I like both Owen and Scotty. I appreciated that Scotty saw Owen for whom his is and not who he was. I like that they relied on each other when faced with death. They have an interesting relationship and great chemistry. They are good for each other and help each other grow. I also enjoyed the situation with Casper and Raina. There are many realistic dynamics that take place that make this novel spellbinding.
This is the first book that I have read by Susan May Warren. I had no problem following it even though it was the sixth book in the series. I do want to go back and read some of the earlier books in the series. I enjoyed Susan May Warren’s writing style and content.
